Barclays staff with Open House volunteer

When two members of staff from Barclays Contact Centre arrived to volunteer at Sunderland Open House, as planned, no-one expected the huge surprise that came with them.

As guests and regular volunteers at the drop-in café welcomed Stephen Bell and Stuart Cummings, they were astonished to find that they had brought boxes of essential food donations, too.

The groceries had all been donated by generous staff from the Doxford Park contact centre and will help feed the many hungry, homeless and needy people who fill the hall at St Mary's Open House each week.

Volunteers running Open House are extremely grateful to everyone at Barclays Contact Centre and would like to pass on their thanks for everything they do.
